So happy to chat with all of you this am. It sounded like your breaks were filled with family, relaxation, and fun! The students were beyond excited as they entered the building to chat with all of you about their breaks!

OTES: Please make sure to PIN from Round #1. I will be working on a schedule for Round #2 soon. If you have a preference (day/time, sooner vs later) , please email me.

Glad to see you all recharged!


Office Chats

I would love to follow up on some of our conversations from the beginning of the year. Reflecting on the first half of the year, I am always trying to improve my practice. I would love to sit down with you individually, or as a team-however you prefer, to have an informal talk about how I can better support you and your grade-level/content area.

Send me an invite, email me, or pop in!
